PHRG 5170 - Bioinformatics: Protein Structure Modeling and Drug Design (3)
Prerequisites: General Chemistry; General Biology; General Physics or with the consent of the instructor. This course consists of lectures and computer lab sessions. It will cover the basic principles and practical applications of modern bioinformatics technologies in the context of drug discovery and design. These technologies (protein structure modeling, structure-based drug design, molecular docking) have been widely used by the biotech and pharmaceutical industry. Emphasis will be placed on the basic principles as well as hands-on experiences as to how to use software tools to solve practical problems. No prerequisite in computational chemistry and / or computer science is needed. Students from multiple disciplines (Chemistry, Biology, Physics, or Computer Science) can benefit from participating in group projects of this course.
